*Gynaecological & Obstetric Injury
Gynaecological injuries can include bladder perforation and perforated bowel. It is so that these sort of injuries can occur without negligence being present as they are known complications that come with procedures such as hysterectomies and laparoscopic salpingectomies.
However it is also a strong possibility that these injuries could have been avoided had competent medical care been afforded to the patient during or after the procedure. If you feel that you were not provided with adequate treatment during your procedure then you should contact BCC Solicitors today for a consultation.
In relation to Obstetric Injury Claims, there is a possibility of perineal tears during pregnancy from a baby’s delivery or from the instruments that may have been used during the birth to assist with delivery. Third and fourth degree tears is where issues most usually arise. They need extensive care and follow up treatment to ensure precarious symptoms do not develop.
If missed or left untreated, perineal tears can have devastating effects on mothers. Women often leave these tears untreated as they are under the illusion that this is a usual part of giving birth or they may simply be embarrassed to discuss the issue.
These injuries should be identified and treated appropriately in the delivery room by medical staff. If you believe you have been misdiagnosed as to the degree of your tear, that your injuries have gone unnoticed or perhaps that you have been treated negligently then get in touch with our Medical Negligence Department now to discuss the matter in the utmost of confidence.
